Learn how to relieve asthma using foot reflexology techniques from certified reflexologist Chantel C. Lucier in this Howcast video.


So how to relieve asthma using some foot reflexology techniques. Certainly you're gonna wanna focus on the lung reflexes. The lung reflexes are housed in the ball of the foot and also on the dorsum so they're all up here as well so we're gonna want to really detail that area. Certainly if you are having an asthmatic attack definitely call 911 and get to the doctor; have something in place. Reflexology is a great complimentary practice, but it's certainly a complimentary practice. You're gonna want to seek professionals should you be having an attack. So we'll start with the lung reflexes. For the lungs we could do the thumb walking and we'll just come up here on the plantar aspect of the foot all the way up to the base of the toes and then we'll come back down. So the other thumb will come down, and I'm really supporting with the other hand, with my fingers and my whole hand, and then you come up again, and if someone has asthma you want to really detail that area, so in addition to walking, thumb walking up and down, you could also thumb walk across. So you'll finish there, all the way across, and then you can go across from the lateral aspect to the medial aspect, so the outside of the foot to the inside, you go across, so you're thumb walking across. And you'll go all the way up; you'll finish right up there. To do the dorsal aspect, or the top of the foot, I use finger walking. So with finger walking you'll just come up through here and you're just gonna come down. So again it's just little bites. And I come up. And I'm going between the metatarsals so if you want to be a little bit more detailed you could go towards, for instance, the second metatarsal here and then you could do it again and detail towards the third just to have more detailed work. Another thing, you know, if someone is having an asthma attack a doctor will administer adrenaline. The adrenal gland naturally produces adrenaline so you could give some attention to the adrenal gland reflex and that's right in here on the plantar, the bottom of the foot, the plantar aspect. So from here you just go right in there. You could thumb walk to find it but generally it's going to be around mid-foot in between this first and second metatarsal, a little bit leaning towards that first. And then lastly you could come along here and you could end with the solar plexus reflex to ease the tension and relax the body. So you come up through here, your thumbs meet at the center, and then you just lean a little forward to meet the point. And that will be it. Those will be the reflexes you detail for attention to asthma.
